Clinique Cheek Pop

It was Bobbi Brown who popularised the concept of a 'pop' of cheek colour, to 'lift' the face:  first, a sorta-natural tawny colour goes on, and then you 'lift' it with a touch - the merest touch - of something brighter on the apples of the cheeks. Well, for that 'something brighter' we now also have Clinique Cheek Pops:  gorgeous 'pressed-flower' powders which glide on like silk, and add - well, yes, a pop - of colour.  The featherweight formula makes for seamless application - and the colours aren't quite as 'scary' as they look in the see-thru pot, as a result. (This is Peach Pop, but we really rather like Plum Pop and Ginger Pop, which is probably the most 'natural' of the quartet.)

Can we suggest - um - popping to your nearest Clinique counter, to take them for a spin…?
